energy use with >>> welcome to "this week in defense news." i'm vago muradian. the u.s. military is the world's largest user of energy. last year consuming some 5 billion gallons of fuel at a cost of nearly $13 billion, 255% more than it spent in 1997. equally important is that protecting that fuel has cost lives. in afghanistan alone, the defense logistics agency is moving 40 million gallons of fuel each month in convoys that have to be defended against attacks. between 2003 and 2007 alone, 3,000 soldiers and contractors were killed or wounded protecting fuel supply lines in iraq and afghanistan. those casualties spurred a major pentagon tribe to develop alternative energy sources while also improving the energy efficiency from everything from future weapons. culminating in the first-ever d.o.d. strategy aim at changing how the department thinks and uses energy. october is energy awareness month and we figured this would be a good idea to get some of the pentagon's top energy minds together to talk about the efforts to date and what's ahead. joining us today are casper hammock, the

group that makes all of us really embarrassed about our old science projects.

own beauty, but you have to get beyond what you're used to. as long as people recognize they're moving to the desert and give up this notion that they have to bring eastern vegetation with them and make the necessary adaptations in their own life, desert communities can continue to live. man: the biggest water user in the desert is turf. turf uses a lot of irrigation and uses spray irrigation, so what we've done here is use artificial turf. you're never going to be able to achieve the look of back east or the look of, say, california, with subtropical plants, but our landscapes are still lush and use about 30% of what the subtropical landscape with turf would use. las vegas has adopted a drought tolerant ordinance. we're using less water today than we used five years ago, despite over 300,000 new residents. i think it's a pretty amazing example as to how a town can really turn on a dime if there's the political will and if the public gets behind it. narrator: even the casinos and resorts have adapted to efficient water use. mulroy: the las vegas strip uses only 3% of all the wat
